Comments:
I purchased this planer $100 from a listing on Craigslist. It was in decent working condition when I received it, but I decided early on that I would be restoring this planer. I replaced a few parts through DC Morrison company, but most of the planer was in good shape just need some cleaning up. It also came with an awesome 2HP Master Electric repulsion induction motor that I ended up replacing the bearings.

I have posted some photos of the planer in the condition I received it and a few of the restoration pictures as I progress through that.
